Background

I was looking for a suitable film project that would enable me to work my full time job as a graphic designer and also not take too much time away from my family of three, all under 3 years old at the time. The Cork Film Festival had screened my last short, Alizarin Woods which I shot with a medium sized cast and crew, but due to limited time I had to do this film differently. I decided to do a green screen short with only one actor, I used myself to save time. I filmed it in a large garage we had in the house we were living in. I filmed at night time to cut down on noise. After filming I then hired two excellent voice artists Melanie Haynes and Kasia Lech to voice the parts of the on-board computer and Z19. I originally had scored with retro synth techno but decided to re-score it with jazz to give a more human element. So I hope you enjoy my sci-fi mystery, Mu Rising
